Molly Adams credits Betsy Park as the sculptor of the sundial. Its inscription reads "I Wish Thee As Much Pleasure In The Reading As I Have Had In The Writing," a quote attributed to English poet Francis Quarles.
It is possible that this is the sundial in Anne's Garden located on the grounds of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Gladstone, New Jersey. According to the May 20, 1971 issue of Bernardsville News, the sundial was given by Betsy Park's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Borman, in memory of their son-in-law Robert Wesley Schooley, Jr. who passed away in 1968. The sundial in Anne's Garden was dedicated in 1971.
